Isle of Man TT Race(Manto Tea Tea Race, English:The Isle of Man TT ) Is1907From the British Royal FamilyIsle of Man Held at (Isle of Man)Motorcycle competitionIs. TT isTourist trophy(Tourist Trophy) Abbreviation.

The competition is the oldest in the worldParliamentMan Island Parliament, also known as the "Blue Sky Parliament"TynwaldIt is carried out by closing public roads based on the public road closure order enacted by. As of 2020, more than 240 participants have died, making it one of the most dangerous competitions in the world.


Tourist trophyThe first prize cup called (Tourist Trophy) was hung.19059/14Car race held on the Isle of Man (1905 International Tourist TrophyWas from[1]. thisRoyal car club (RAC) Sponsored by(English edition)Is still the oldest surviving title in motorsport[Annotation 1]..On the other hand, the British representative selection race for motorcycles held on the same Isle of Man on May 1905, 5 has been held every year since 31 as the Isle of Man TT race.[2], TT race has grown into a famous event that points to this.

Tourists mean "expedition athletes" rather than tourists, and in the case of the Isle of Man TT races they are riders.The form of the race is as it is nowcircuitIt is derived from the fact that it was a form of long-distance intercity race that was conducted using public roads connecting European cities until it was conducted using (circular course).[3], CyclingStage raceIt is similar to the word "tour" ("tool" in French) used in.

Initially the same as a commercial vehicle called a touring machineオ ー ト バ イIs being held for[4]The purpose was to improve the commercial vehicle.Eventually, the motorcycles that participated in the race evolved into sports types year by year.[5].

Traditionally held from the last week of May to the first week of June, the course is the capital city in the southeastern part of the island.DouglasStarting from, make a big turn west to north and make a round trip to the town on the northeast coast. The length of one lap is 1 37/3 miles (4km), there are more than 60.7 curves, and there is a height difference of more than 200ft (0m) from 1,300ft above sea level.The course is usually used as a general road for daily life and sightseeing, and when racers pass by, general vehicles are restricted.The maximum speed of the participating vehicles is 396km / h or more, the average speed exceeds 300km / h, and one lap is completed in less than 200 minutes.

Since it is not a completely paved road like a circuit, it is an ordinary road, so you may jump a dozen meters with a slight step, or the front and rear suspensions move violently at top speed to absorb vibration. You can also see it.At a super high speed cornerPower slide,Wheelie running, Urban areaHairpin cornerAtOvertakeIt is quite commonplace, and many galleries invade the prohibited area for that purpose.Since it is a public road, there are almost no escape zones, and most riders in the event of an accident say, "If you are lucky, you will survive." This is basically a fatal accident.Participants say they don't feel any fear during the race due to excessive adrenaline secretion.After finishing the race, many riders will slump or start crying due to the unraveling of the tension.

AwardedTrophyIs one of the founders, Marquis de Moujiri San Mars (the Marquis de Mouzilly St. Mars ) Donated the silver figureOlympicGod ofHelmesHas feathersWheelIt straddles.This trophy is similar to the Montague trophy awarded to the winners of the Isle of Man, Tourist Trophy and Auto Racing.In addition to the ranking, the rider who finishes the race will be given the greatest honor.

Isle of Man race1904ToGordon Bennett CupIt started as a trial to select the contestants ofAutomobileIt was only a race. In 1903, the Automobile Law was enforced in the United Kingdom and a speed limit of 20mph was enforced.UK / Ireland / Car Club (laterRoyal car club) Representatives contacted the upper reaches of the Isle of Man to request permission to race on public roads and used the 1904 mile "Highlands" course on the Isle of Man under the Public Road (Light Steam Engine) Act of 52.15. Was allowed.

At the 1905 Gordon Bennett Car Trial, it was decided to hold a trial competition to select the British national team to compete in the International Motorcycle Cup Race.Climbing a steep mountain section was difficult for motorcycles and an accident occurred at Ramsey Hairpin, so the competition committee finally set the 25-mile section of the Gordon Bennett trial course as the course.The capital of the Isle of Man,Douglas CityFrom the southern part of the city, head north through Castletown, turn back on the A3 road toward Barraclein, and return to Douglas, the starting point, via Colby and Glen Vine, which is the reverse of the current route. ..JS Campbell won the race in 4 hours 9 minutes 36 seconds.

In 1906, the International Motorcycle Cup was held in Austria, where cheating and tactics were rampant and confusing.The next year's race will be for public roads as a result of discussions between the representatives of the Auto-Cycle Club and Freddie Straight, the Coriel brothers (Machiles Motorcycle), Marquis de Moujiri San Mars, etc. when returning by train. It was decided to use a motorcycle and base it on a car race on a public road closed course on Man Island.This new method of competition was proposed by the editor of the magazine Motorcycle at the Auto-Cycle Club's annual dinner on January 1907, 1 in London.The competition was divided into two classes: a single-cylinder engine with an average fuel consumption of 17mpg and a two-cylinder engine with an average fuel consumption of 90mpg.Saddles, pedals, mudguards, and exhaust silencers have been designated as regulations for public road specification vehicles.

19075/28The first competition was held in Japan, and the 1-mile 15-yard St. John Short Course was equipped with saddles, pedals, mudguards, etc. to meet security standards on public roads.TouringI made 10 laps on my motorcycle.MatchlessI got on, but 4 hours 8 minutes 8 seconds / average speed 38.21mphWon the single cylinder class and the overall class at (about 61km / h). 2-cylinder classPeugeotI put the engine onNortonIt was a victory at 4 hours 21 minutes 52 seconds / average speed 36.21mph. The "Marquis de Moujiri San Mars" trophy began to be awarded this year.

In 1908, the fuel economy was raised to 100mpg for single cylinders and 2mpg for two cylinders, and the use of pedals was banned.Jack MarshallTriumphThe average speed was 40.49mph. In 1909, the fuel economy regulations were revised and the use of exhaust silencers was abolished.Single-cylinder machines are limited to 500cc, and 2-cylinder machines are limited to 750cc.With the increase in lap speed, the 1910-cylinder machine was limited to 2cc from 670.

During qualifying in 2, Victor Sulridge got on board and crashed at Glen Helen and died.

In 1912, the junior TT race was up to 2cc, regardless of whether it was a single-cylinder engine or a two-cylinder engine, and the 350cc class was the Xenia TT race. In 500, the autocycle club representative changed from Tommy Roughborough to Freddie Straight, and soon the race changed to be more difficult.The Junior TT race was divided into two races, two laps and four laps.The Xenia TT race started on 1913 laps with the 2 laps of the Junior TT race. In 2, the Junior TT had five laps and the starting point also moved to Bray Hill.This has made it possible to have a large paddock space for athletes.Helmets were required in case of a crash. In 4, Junior TT was held in heavy rain, and the mountain course was foggy.AJSEric Williams won the championship at 4 hours 6 minutes 50 seconds / average speed 45.58mph.That year, Frank Walker on board died in an accident.

The Isle of Man TT race has continued to be the world's largest road race event since it became one of the Grand Prix, but on the other hand, elements different from other Grand Prix such as the 60km mountain course and interval start are modern. I came to be shunned by GP riders who were accustomed to the circuit.In addition, even if the pavement is rough, the repair cost will be enormous due to the long distance of the course, but on the public road course where it is not possible to earn entrance fee income from the spectators, it was not possible to raise the cost.And, the maintenance of the course could not keep up with the speed increase of the motorcycle, and the rider who emphasizes safety began to refuse to participate in the Isle of Man TT race.Yamaha The1972Did not participate only in the Isle of Man TT race, the same yearGiacomo Agostini"I'm not going to play in 1973 unless the course is refurbished," he said.1973Did not participate in influential teams and riders.
